Pellissippi State Community College hosts local and regional artists Soon Ee Ngoh, Denise Stewart-Sanabria, and David Underwood in an upcoming exhibit in January and February.

“Represent: Explorations in Realism, Image and Illusion” is on display Jan. 19-Feb. 5 in the Bagwell Center for Media and Art, 10915 Hardin Valley Road. A reception to meet the artists takes place 3-5 p.m., Jan. 19.

The exhibit is free. Gallery hours are 10 a.m.-6:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.

The exhibit takes a look at the meaning and use of realism and representation in two-dimensional art. The participating artists’ different approaches include photography, observation, and realism as a springboard for conveying different moods, meanings, and concepts. 

“Represent” studies mimesis, or the imitation of nature, as a doorway into thoughts on the modern condition, the nature of representation, the fallibility of perception and human nature, among other themes.

The exhibit is part of The Arts at Pellissippi State, which brings to the community cultural activities ranging from music and theatre to international celebrations, lectures, and the fine arts. For more information, visit www.pstcc.edu/arts or call (865) 694-6400.
